Here Is Our Philosophy!

Results come first. Nothing else matters but results.


To get started, watch this video! Personal Trainer NYC


As a company principle to achieve the best results for you, we follow the Hedgehog Rule. We do one thing, and one thing only. Make people look and feel great. Nothing else. We do this by progressively overloaded resistance training programs, following the SAID principle, and an intelligent approach to nutrition.


This is done by empathy, caring, professionalism, and the passing on of knowledge. We are the Sherpas, getting you, the client, up on the mountain peak of your choice.

The first step is to find out what you, the client, wants. This is not a top- down discussion, but a conversation where we find out what challenges you have encountered in the past, what your problems are and how we can fix them.


Personal training in NYC or anywhere else, is a mutual contract. We deliver our utmost best by creating the best workouts and diets for the client and leading by example. Then we strive together to meet our mutual goal.

We follow science and nothing else

Our NASM, BSA and AFPA certified personal trainers strictly follow two principles:



Progressive overload is the gradual increase of stress placed upon the body during exercise training. This principle refers to continually increasing the demands on the musculoskeletal system in order to continually make gains in muscle and leanness.


In the simplest terms: in order to improve your body must continually lift more and more and make your muscles work harder than which they are accustomed. If you don’t, your muscles will not become any stronger or bigger than they currently are.


Sounds simple enough, yet we all know someone who goes to the gym for years on end without getting anywhere. In nine out of ten cases, the overload principle was violated. How can you overload this gym purgatory? Set up a program where you increase either load or volume for about 4-5 weeks, then take a week of active recovery, switch exercises and start anew.

Meet the Professor - Personal Trainer NYC

I’m a two-time World Cup and Olympic level swimmer and a two-time Muscle Mania champion. So I know what it takes to build a body that looks and feels great.


I’ve made many mistakes along my Bodybuilding journey; from using the wrong training regimes to putting on unwanted weight to following the wrong diet…you name it. This experience inspired me to learn the science of Bodybuilding, the only answer to getting the body I desired. I’m now on a mission to help you not make the same mistakes that I did, and teach you the right way to build your body.


Remember, bodybuilding is science based (Or it should be). If you understand the science behind training and diet, you are not beholden to bro science, dad diets, waist trainers, detox teas and harmful workouts anymore because you are now in control.
